22 June

It has been pretty rainy in Sydney lately, so there have been a lot of indoor activities to photograph. I only hope that it fines up for the school holidays!

Lots of knitting going on - I finished the Icarus shawl, although I still haven't blocked it. I used a pretty Dream in Colour baby lace called Cloud Jungle. The soft colours reminded me of the colours in a pigeon's feathers, keeping in with the Icarus theme - in the myth Icarus flew too close to the sun with his wood, wax and feather wings; the wax melted and the feathers slid off, can you see that in the shawl?

Lots of tea drinking

snuggling up under the heater

playing with favourite toys

and taking photos of the wet world outside when we weren't allowed to go out into it :)

I remember that rainy weather! Looks like you used the time well though. The shawl is stunning...and so is that cup and saucer! x
